[Intro] G  Em  Am  D7  (2x)

[Verse 1]

G                 Em         Am               D7
I first ran into Stoney. . . it was a bar downtown;
G                        Em    Am                 D7
It was Richmond, Virginia. . . we were bummim’ around,
C              D        Em    D         C      Am
Suitcase to suitcase. . . we started in talkin‘,
 G                      Em                Am      D7          G   Em  Am   D7
Finding out about the things we've shared in the miles we've been

[Verse 2]

 G                  Em         Am                  D7
Well, he had a gray pillowcase full of books by Durrell,
 G                  Em         Am                                D7
And he had this old concertina, all beat up and she played like hell,
 C                  D      Em           D       C     Am
Until you got him started singing those Gospel songs,
 G                            Em                  Am   D7       G    Em  Am   D7
Well, he drank all night for nothing, he told his stories till dawn.

[Verse 3]

 G                                   Em   Am                             D7
And he said, "Come on, get your bag, boy! Sun's up now and it's time to roll!
  G                                                          Em
Yeah you know there ain't no better time than early in the mornin’
 Am                         D7
To be out walking down that road!
   C                           D      Em            D                  C    Am
Just feeling another day beginnin’, whilst all the fools is rushin’ on by,
  G                         Em                        Am   D7     G     Em  Am   D7
We'll be like some Mr. Independence: we're taking our own sweet time!"

[Verse 4]

  G                   Em      Am                  D7
We walked on out that highway under a clear blue sky,
  G                    Em              Am                D7
I was listenin’ to the tales he told, drinking warm red wine.
  C                      D               Em   D          C    Am
'Bout a night he rolled seven; bout some girl he'd done wrong;
  G                       Em        Am      D7      G     Em  Am   D7
'Bout everything he could think of while we walked along.

[Verse 5]

 G                      Em    Am                D7
Yeah, ol' Stoney had a magic; made him hard to forget.
 G                               Em    Am                          D7
Like the night we flew down the highway his old pickup, it nearly wrecked!
 C                  D       Em          D               C   Am
With a crazy woman driving, all drunked up and carrying on;
 G                   Em        Am             D7    G     Em  Am   D7
Till Stoney finally calmed her singing those Gospel songs.

[Verse 6]

G                           Em      Am                    D7
Well, we split the road at Norwood, and he just shook my hand.
G                        Em                 Am                    D7
He said, "I'll see you some place, friend," but you know he never has.
C                 D          Em   D                C   Am
But we were that free then, just walking down the road,
G             Em              Am   D7   G   Em  Am   D7
Never really caring where that highway goes.

[Verse 7]

G                   Em                     Am               D7
Yeah, Stoney was a liar and a bullshitter, ain't no doubt about it.
G                      Em           Am                      D7
It was just the way he told things, that you never want to doubt him.
C                    D   Em        D        C    Am
'Cause he kept you going when the road got rough,
G                            Em        Am  D7       G   Em
And brought you through the lean times by making it up.
                                                Am                  D7
"Hey, did I ever tell you the time I married my cousin up in Las Vegas?"
G              Em            Am   D7    G
Yeah, Stoney. Tell it again…
